Sencore has added HEVC analysis capabilities in its Compressed Media Analyzer CMA 1820. The CMA 1820 offers in-depth analysis of compressed media transport streams.

"HEVC analysis is critical as developers look to take advantage of this bandwidth saving technology,” said Jeff Briden, vice president of product management at Sencore. “We are seeing tremendous demand for encoder and decoder development and evaluation, [and] the CMA allows for deeper inspection, frame-by-frame breakout, coding tree block structure, full header syntax, PTS/DTS timing and A/V sync analysis."

The Sencore CMA 1820 enables designers, engineers, system integrators and network operators to verify standards compliance, identify media interoperability issues, develop products around new CODECs and troubleshoot transmission issues. It also offers full support for HEVC/H.265, H.264, MPEG2, and VC-1 video along with AC-3, AAC and MPEG audio, and has enhanced options such as closed-caption subtitles, SCTE35-DPI and PTS/DTS alignment analysis.
